Meet Your Master Therapists

After spending more than 50 years combined helping people overcome their fears of flying, we felt it was time to make our treatment available to a greater number of people. Since everyone travels with their phone or tablet, we decided to build an interactive app to give users the tools they need to overcome their fears, when they need them most.
